Dream Analysis


I had a dream this morning that a plane crashed. I don't really remember much of the dream, but it went something like this.

I was at work in a meeting room with two other people... people I couldn't name for you now.  I happened to notice a plane out one window that flew close to our building.  It was Army green and was shaped like a cargo plane yet seemed small enough to fit through the large office building window.  I looked at my co-workers and said that I thought that plane looked like it was going to hit the building or even the ground, that it was flying awfully low.

The next thing I know, we could see a HUGE red, white, and blue plane out the windows on the adjacent side of the building.  This one was a passenger plane with a wide wingspan.  It was flying perpendicular to the ground.  I said that I thought that one looked like it could hit the ground too.  Then it did!  With a huge crashing sound and a plume of smoke and debris.

I don't remember anything else about the dream.  But this morning I decided to look up a dream analysis of crashing planes.  This is what I got from DreamMoods.com...

To dream that a plane crashes suggests that you have set overly high and unrealistic goals for yourself.  Your goals may be too high and are impossible to realize. You are in danger of having it come crashing down. Alternatively, your lack of confidence, self-defeating attitude and self-doubt toward the goals you have set for yourself is represented by the crashing airplane; you do not believe in your ability to attain those goals. Loss of power and uncertainty in achieving your goals are also signified.

I underlined the part that speaks to me today.  My only lofty goals are to be debt-free and lose 100 lbs.  But since I've done little to bring either of those goals to fruition... due to my lack of confidence in my ability to attain them and my self-defeating attitude lately... well, you see where I'm going there.

I have an alternate explanation for the dream that has nothing to do with what the professional dream analysts suggest.  But I'll keep that to myself.  What do I know anyway?!

I have a goal to lose 2 pounds by the end of the year. My next weight goal will be to stay at that weight for a month. Make goals attainable and then pat yourself on the back! Make lists, I love lists and I often add things to my to-do list after I've done them, just so they count and so I can see what I've really accomplished ;-) everything counts! Maybe breaking up your goals into smaller accomplishments will help your airplanes stay aloft
